I did learn a few things yesterday whilst packing.
I have too many albums. I know I have whined about this before on the blog but here I go again. I know logically that I have to slow down the scrapping process. I can't continue to accumulate these albums at this rate. There are boxes and boxes of packed up albums sitting in my basement. Maybe the solution is to mostly scrap for other people. If I could stick to just scrapping two LO's per month for me, that would be about one album per year into the house. That is doable. Oh, if only. ;)
I have too much "stuff". It really hits home how much you have when you see it all packed up together. I need to start using this supply. I think that Green Peace will soon be after me for the trees I am killing. ;) I know that the solution to this one is to stay away from the LSS. Well, I have taken the first step and have unsubscribed from my two local stores. If I don't get the email telling me what is new in the shop, I will be less likely to run down and buy it. I know that I have plenty of supplies to record any memory that needs to be recorded. I still love all of the supplies that I still have to use.
The bulk of the stuff in our house is my "crafty stuff". Yes, moving would be much less work if I didn't have all of this crafty stuff. There is scrappy stuff and cross stitch stuff and knitting stuff and lots of magazines about all this stuff. Jennifer's Knitting Emporium is sitting in boxes..... in my basement.
Well, enough of my whining. I never lose sight of how lucky I am to have all of these wonderful supplies to keep me inspired to create each day but, sometimes I question how I will house the end result of this addiction. At least with knitting, the woolies are given away and put to good use by others. Where do I draw the line at creating albums for myself? Could my time be better spent creating less for me and more for others? Do you guys ever feel the same way about this crazy addiction? Does it overwhelm you at times?
Happy Scrapping!! Jen :)
